Author Rachel Gilmore writes that missional
communities are popping up in auto shops, pubs,
parks, and tattoo parlors. The pandemic of Covid-19
created virtual missional communities that meet
in a Zoom room to talk about parables while eating
pizza that they all ordered from a local restaurant.
Missional communities are springing up by using
the house party app where friends and friends of
friends gather to play games and pray for situations
they are facing during quarantine.
In her book, Expanding the Expedition Reach with
Missional Communities, Gilmore discusses three
primary reasons churches must take mission
communities more seriously and what to do to make
more missional communities a reality.
• What is a Missional Community?
• Why do we Need Missional Communities?
• Listen and Discern
• Love, Serve & Gather
• Disciple and Worship
